located in an old rowhome - matthews serves pizza that can only be described as heavenly! and it is consistantly awesome. there is a small bar located in the basement so you can have a drink while you wait for a table... it is a local legend - you will never leave hungry or disappointed

Matthew's is in a category unto itself. It's really hard to compare it to other local pizza places since it's very different. Their thick crust is so perfectly greasy and crispy and chewy all at once, but in a good way! Both Cheese is my favorite!
Definitely a pizza to eat right away, however. It's not as good if it's not fresh out of the oven.

I can't say anything bad, this passed 8 month I have frequented matthews at least 3 times a month. The pizza is outstanding and the waitresses are awesome. I never liked Matthews because I used to get their pizza from Desanti's restaurant in Perry Hall. But Desanti's can't even make a great pizza, whose recipe they own, right.

this is the best pizza in baltimore and those who wrote bad reviews, I dont believe you. either you have no idea what good is, or you have been eating garbage for so long when you finally eat something wonderfull your body rejects it. stick to catus willies where you can have your favorite steak and eat it with a spork.

IF you are a pizza conasuour, and you have not tried Matthews then you are lacking in your understanding of what a perfect pizza is and taste like. Words alone cannot describe the Taste of this delite. A perfectly balanced sauce (with real fresh tomato chucks) on a crust that even thou it is thick does not fill you up when you reallize that you just ate a large all by yourself and have room to seek a piece off your wifes plate, and the cheese is fresh and not put on just cover the pie, but just enough to make it perfect .( it has those brown well done spots that taste like heaven) Accompanying the pizza with a couple of your favorite Stewarts sodas adds to the meal to make it more then "Hey "hon", you feelin' like pizza tonite"? and she replies" yea, but lets go up to the Ave and get a " Large Matthews Both Cheese"! To which my reply is "Okay, but what are you goin' to eat!!!"

Trust Me you will not regret it one bit!

Matthews pizza is one of a kind and there in nothing else like it in the city (state) and we are lucky to have them in our own backyard. The Crab Pie is superb, tons of crab meat! Everyone has to try their original tomato pie with no cheese, you can really enjoy the flavor of their unique crust that way. The anti-pasta salad is supreme with wonderful meats and fresh veggies.. The same fresh meats and veggies can be found on the best cold cut sub in town. They carry the Stewart old fashioned sodas which is a great way to wash down some of the best food in town.

Although the restaurant is small, the atmosphere and food are unbelievable. My personal favorite is the large popular (pizza) with mushrooms. The spaghetti with meatballs is fantastic and the house red wine is great. I am a regular visitor even though I live two hours away. I have traveled to many countries around the world and this restaurant is my number one all time favorite. When you visit for the first time, just say "Lupe" sent you. You will not be disappointed. I would definitely rate Matthew's Pizza five stars!

I went to Matthew's one time because of all the rave reviews. We got a large carryout pizza. The first thing I noticed is that the "large" pizza would possibly satisfy one person, maybe two if you weren't very hungry. Okay, maybe if it was so wonderful as people have raved, maybe it would be worth it. Well, we got it home and the crust was so underdone as to almost be uncooked. The dough was so undercooked that the pizza was entirably inedibale. Given all the rave reviews, perhaps it was just a very unfortunate fluke. However, given the very small pizza you get for your money, you can be assured that we will never try their "wonderful" pizzas ever again. Um, do they offer refunds?!?

A visit to Matthew's is somehow more than the sum of its parts. The Pizza is marvelous.
The service is friendly and the location is great. The only improvment I could suggest
would be fresh mushrooms on the pizza instead of canned.

I live just down the block from Matthews and it is one of the greatest features of the neighborhood. They offer a fabulous variety of pizza toppings as well as some wonderful sandwiches. You should definately try the baked french fries! In a neighborhood where restaurant choices are limited, we are lucky to have Matthews within walking distance.

Chicago, New York, Philadelphis take notice. Matthews serves the best pizza anywhere. This has been a tradition for many years. They do not do carry out. The traditional is my favorite.

I AM IN THE MILITARY AND HAVE PROBABLY HAD PIZZA IN EVERY CORNER OF THE GLOBE FROM NEW YORK TO PARIS AND FROM CALIFORINIA TO JAPAN. MATTHEW'S PIZZA IS CHEAP, THE SERVICE AND SETTING ARE UNIQUE. ALWAYS A GREAT VALUE ABOUT HALF THE COST OF LEADING PIZZA CHAINS AND ONE HUNDRED TIMES BETTER. I HAVE SET FOOT ON SIX CONTINENTS AND MATTHEW'S IS THE BEST!

I was not a "Pizza" person until my first visit to Matthew's. The atmosphere is excellent and the food is simply marvelous. I lived in the DC area for several years and traveled to Baltimore weekly just for the pizza. Although I no longer live within driving distance of Matthew's Pizza, I have taken vacation to the area just to go there. It is worth the trip and effort.

I've been frequenting Matthew's since I was born pretty much - its a family tradition. The family atmosphere and delicious food hasn't changed. It is still the absolute best pizza in Baltimore bar none! With friendly staff, excellent service and wonderful food, its a local HIT!

Matthew's has the greatest pizza around. I am shocked it was behind papa johns. Papa Johns is ok compared to Matthew's Pizza. If you are ever in baltimore you must go down on Eastern Avenue and STOP! It is a very small place but it is such the best.

The best pizza in town by far. The only reason its not number one is because its small and not enough people have eaten there. Ingredients are fresh, and its just delicious.

This pizza needs to be hot, and preferably enjoyed in the dining area my mother sat in when she was a little girl, trying the pizza so good that generations flock into the small pizzeria to get a slice.

I have been returning to Matthew's for Pizza since I am about six years old - about 40 years - so what does that tell you. It is unique - it has a flavor and texture all its own. I highly recommend it.

Different than any you may be used to.
No frills. Definitely a homemade style that's exuded by the non-commercial crust, the olde-world sauce, and just enough cheese.(If you even decide to choose it as a topping. At this place, it's not unusual to order a pie w/o cheese.)
Wherever you live, be it city or county, it's worth the trip to this parkside joint...!!!

Just thinking about Matthew's Pizzeria makes my
mouth water for their 3 Cheese Pizza.
I'm in my 50's and have been going there ever since I can remember. I lived in the area as a kid and do some traveling to get there now, but it is worth every mile traveled.
My co-workers are ready to order when someone mentions Matthew's.
Big orders are no problem. Uummm, see ya Hon, gotta go for a ride.

Anytime anyone visits me from out of town I take them to Matthew's Pizza or at least order out from there. I want everyone to have the chance to have the best pizza they will ever have. I've lived in numerous cities and states and this is by FAR the best pizza ever and everyone I introduce to it says the same (so it's not just me). Their Crab Pie is to die for, their crust is amazing and everything on their menu (Oh, my God, their meatballs!) is very reasonably priced, unbelievably priced for the quality of their homemade food.
